The Online Trading Academy Story

Eyal Shahar

100% Focused on Highest Quality Education

Eyal Shahar, our founder and President, started this business in 1997 when he was operating a large trading floor in Irvine, California. In order to help the traders that were trading his capital at that time, he began to write training classes for them. The training that he provided to these traders became so effective that he switched the focus of the company from active trading to education and, since then, we have been 100% focused on developing and delivering the world’s highest quality independent financial education classes.

Find Out More About Owning a Franchise

Our first Financial Education Center was company-owned, but we quickly realized that the model could be easily replicated with appropriate support and the first Online Trading Academy franchise opened in 2005. Today we have 39 locations around the world including the original Center. Exciting franchise territories are still available.
